DD is 6 weeks and seems to be prone to nappy rash. Every time we start using cloth nappies it comes back within a day.
It clears up reasonably quick when using disposables and zinc+caster oil cream for a few days.
but as soon as we switch back to MCN's she gets a sore red butt
any tips other than being religious with frequent changes?

Could it be the laundry powder, perhaps?

Thanks for the tips. I'll get some liners avd look at getting a gentle washing powder.
Ive just been using a 1/4 amount of our usual powder but maybe it's too harsh. Any reccomendations?

I use to use the eco wash. Can I ask, are you running them through a cold rinse cycle than washing them in hot water?

I use earth's choice and find it really good. I also found using a high water level helps. Some people like soap nuts or rocking green.
